Gave my first Pecha Kucha presentation a couple nights ago at the Association of Children’s Museums annual conference in Philly. The session, organized by the ever savvy duo Paul Orselli and Peter Exley, allowed half a dozen or so of us to show 20 slides for 20 seconds each. And that’s it.
I talked about (or tried to talk about in that time) how physical movement — in particular Shintaido — has influenced my work in exhibit media design. How a good exhibit is like an effective cut with a sword, expressive and connected with our partner/audience. To illustrate, I included this shot of me cutting my friend Mary with a wooden sword (which earned me a certain reputation later in the exhibit hall).
